When the Narrator looks at the photographs in "The Denton Affair" album, some of the photos don't match up with what actually occurred in the previous scene. Things such as, when the car pulls up, and the driver exits and moves out of view, there are only a few people left on the porch, but in the photo there is a crowd on the porch. See more...

The "questions" section is for any random questions that occurred to you while watching this film, or anything you didn't entirely understand, and which Google or the IMDb can't help with. Submit them as a question, and hopefully someone will answer (the bold comments in brackets) - check back regularly. If the answer is wrong, or missing information, please use the "clarify answer" option. Don't feel limited - want to know what music played in a certain scene? Whether this was the first film to use a certain effect? Here's the place to ask!
Question: Patricia Quinn (Magenta) and Patricia Heaton (Debra from Everybody Loves Raymond) bear a very strong resemblance. I'm wondering if they are the same actress?
Answer: They are most definitely NOT the same actress. Patricia Quinn was born in 1944 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and Patricia Heaton was born in 1958 in Ohio.
Question: One of my co-workers said the first line in the show was, "Michael Renee was sick the day the Earth stood still". Could you give me the exact first line and what it means?
Answer: The first line to the lyrics of 'Science Fiction/Double Feature' is "Michael Rennie was ill The Day the Earth Stood Still, but he told us where we stand." That line is a reference to the 1951 film classic 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', which stars Michael Rennie as Klaatu, the alien from outer-space, who is shot at the start of the film when he tries convey a dire message of goodwill to the humans. The rest of the song lyrics refer to other science fiction films including 'The Invisible Man' starring Claude Rains, 'King Kong' starring Fay Wray, and 'Tarantula' starring Leo G. Carroll.
Question: I think that this is the case, I just want to check. At the start, the church attendants are Riff-Raff and Magenta (and, I presume, Columbia). Is the vicar really Frank-N-Furter?
Answer: Yes, this is alluded to by the Criminologist (narrator) circling their heads on a big picture from the wedding.
Question: Why, when Betty and Ralph drive off on honeymoon at the start does the car say 'Wait till tonight - she got hers now he'll get his'? Am I missing something or am I just being naive and innocent?
Answer: It means they are going to have sex. The bride got her groom and the groom is going to get laid.
